The 5005 series of board-level frequency synthesizers from Valon Technology consist of two signal sources on one circuit board. In the standard unit, the first synthesizer operates from 1250 to 1750 MHz while the second synthesizer runs from 1000 to 1350 MHz. They provide between +6 and +10 dBm typical output power. The phase noise is typically -76 dBc/Hz offset 1 kHz from the carrier and -110 dBc/Hz offset 100 kHz from the carrier. The dual synthesizer board operates on +4 to +10 VDC supplies with 160 mA typical current consumption. The synthesizer can be used with the on-board temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) reference source or an external reference. Detachable interface adapter modules are available for either 9-pin RS-232 or Universal Serial Bus (USB) communications. The 5005 series synthesizers are also available with other frequency plans as custom items.
